                    You have a cheap rattleback. Most (like yours) only reverse when spun in one direction. Some don't like being spun in either direction, and whichever way you spin them, they'll reverse.

                    I think these are normally carved out of unicorn horn.

                      Two other things that operate in reverse south of the equator. When you pull the plug out of the bath-tub, the whirlpool above the drain revolves opposite south of the equator. When a dog turns around 2 or 3 times before laying down, they turn the opposite direction south of the equator.

                            The water in toilets in the northern hemisphere circles counter-clockwise, whereas those below the equator exhibit the opposite behavior, due to the Coriolis Effect. Toilets close to the equator don't flush at all, which is why so many countries in that region are called "turd world nations"...
